Being a little further from London than the Cotswolds the area provides an overwhelming difference in house prices in exchange for a little longer on the train or in the car.
Once a well-kept secret, an increasing number of buyers are choosing to relocate to Herefordshire to capitalise on the current, competitive house prices and the more leisurely pace of life.
One key difference when compared to other parts of the country is that once people move to Herefordshire, they often stay long term. It is not unusual to sell houses that owners have lived in for over 30 years having relocated to the county from elsewhere.

Agriculture remains a significant industry with cider apples, hops, Herefordshire cattle and Ryeland sheep being notable exports. Well known food fairs are held annually in Ludlow and nearby Abergavenny, and most towns have excellent regular farmers markets.
Leisure pursuits range from traditional country sports such as game shooting, fishing and hunting through to activity sports such as mountain biking, horse riding, hiking, canoeing and paragliding. Most towns and villages have cricket, rugby and football clubs among many others.
Culturally Herefordshire has a lot to offer. There are several good theatres dotted around the county with the Courtyard Theatre in Hereford being most notable.
